with you guys incidentally. we have had a blast here. but i remember when paul ryan made his speech that night, while the speech was still going on, we were watching the tweets come up pointing out that he had blatantly misrepresented one of the key stories that he told. and i'll tell you, i think that his inability to really give any kind of boost to the romney/ryan ticket has been shaped as much as anything else by the fact that he did a belly flop in that speech because the social media picked him up on it right away before the speech was even over. >> jennifer: it's an interesting thing. maybe the main stream media will be influenced by the twitter stream more than the reverse. >> cenk: we have got to take a quick break, when we come back john has an interesting question. what is the question we would ask of the debaters. >> cenk: we're back on current's politically direct coverage of the first presidential debate. it's coming up in just a little bit. going to be a lot of fun. john fugelsang has a question for all of us. >> john: as long as we're all celebrating

this will affect you. the idea, originally presented by kochm congressman ryan, your running mate. we would give a voucher to seniors and they could go out in the private marketplace and buy their own health insurance. the problem is, that because the voucher wouldn't necessarily keep up with health care inflation, it was estimated that this would cost the average senior about $6,000 a year. now, in fairness, what governor romney said is he will maintain traditional medicare alongside it. what happened, those insurance companies are pretty clever at figuring out who are the younger and healthier seniors, recruit them, leaving the older and sicker seniors in medicare. and over time, what will happen, the traditional medicare system will collapse. and then what you've got is folks like my grandmother, at the mercy of the private insurance system, precisely at the time when they are most in need of decent health care. so i don't think vouchers are the right way to go, and this is not my -- not only my opinion. aarp thinks that the savings we obtained from medicare bolstered the system, lengthened t
by congressman ryan, you're running mate. we would get a voucher to seniors. they could go out in the private marketplace and buy their own health insurance. the problem is that because the voucher would not necessarily keep up with health care inflation, this would cost the average senior about $16,000 per year. but governor romney has said is he will maintain traditional medicare alongside it. there is still a problem. those insurance companies are clever about figuring out to are the younger and healthier seniors. they recruit them, leaving the older, sicker seniors in medicare. every health care economist as overtime, the traditional medicare system will collapse. you have people like my grandmother at the mercy of the private insurance system when they are most in need of decent health care. i do not think vouchers are the right way to go. this is not my -- only my opinion. aarp thinks the savings we obtained from medicare bolstered the system, lincoln the medicare trust fund by eight years. benefits were not affected. if you repeal obamacare, the simmons will be paying $600 more in pres

not only from paul ryan but also it came from bill clinton's chief of staff. this is an idea that has been around a long time. let's see if we can get competition into the medicare world so people can get the choice of different plans, better quality. i believe in a competition. >> first of all, every study has shown medicare has lowered administrative costs, which is why seniors are generally pretty happy with it. private insurers have to make a profit. there is nothing wrong with that, that is what they do. you have higher administrative costs, plus profit on top of that, and if you are going to save any money through what gov. romney is proposing, what has to happen is that the money has to come from somewhere. when you move to a voucher system, you are putting seniors at the mercy of those programs. over time if traditional medicare has decayed or fallen apart, then they are stopped. this is the reason why aarp has said your plan would weaken medicare substantially. that is why they were supportive of the approach that we took. we do have to lower the cost of health care, not just in
